Simultaneous translation is the term we use when a speaker delivers an address and our simultaneous translator repeats the words 'simultaneously' into another language. Usually this translating is done from an translator's booth and the translator listens to the speaker via headsets and speaks into a special push-to-talk microphone which is then transmitted by very secure wireless infra-red or radio frequency to the conference or presentation's delegates.
PS - strictly speaking translation is for the written word and translated word for word from one language to another. Interpreting is called just that because the interpreter interprets what is being said and reproduces it with very little delay into another language. You try and speak in the same language as someone who is speaking to you repeating it simultaneously in the same language - not easy is it!Click here to see how it all fits together.

Lots of hints there for you as well!
Televic's Lingua and Aladdin systems are specialist simultaneous translation systems. The simultaneous translation equipment takes a speaker's voice, and, via distortion free and secure digital infra-red light, transmits the speech to the delegates in their mother tongue (with this equipment you can interpret & translate up to 40 languages simultaneously).
Eavesdropping? Not with secure infra-red. This wireless system uses our secure digital infra-red light for sound transmission - not radio waves.
Our Televic Lingua and Aladdin digital receivers can also be used in broad daylight or under floodlights with no change or reduction in the transmitted sound quality.
